i've seen super huge bottles (no individual packaging) in Giant before.. but i'm looking out for the small packs (like the usual white ones u can find in new shoe boxes etc) so that i can throw 1 into my camera bag. don't need those "rechargeable" ones.

don't be mistaken - i have a dry cabinet. it's just that sometimes i have 4-5 lenses + 2 bodies in my bag that it's troublesome to always transfer them to and fro when i need to use them for assignments/outings.

any idea? :)

I got mine for keeping my unuse winter wear in ziplock bag from daiso. it can be recycled by tanning under the sun once the pack has saturated with moisture.

I make a habit of store my camera lenses back to dry cabinet when it is not in use, not troublesome at all, I shoot very often some days, some time twice a day.

anyway, you can try to find from $2 stores,
but if I really want that, I will just buy a tub of silica gel and some small zip lock plastic bags from SKP and repack it myself.

Not sure where to get, but you can always DIY... use old socks and just pour some silica gel in them, tied one end and thats it.
